    Personally I would recommend the Phantom 410. I have the NZXT Phantom 820, which is the biggest model, and it's cooling is excellent and quiet. Also bear in mind that the Phantom 410 has side cooling to assist in cooling your GPU, whereas the Zalman doesn't.
     
    The Zalman is an entry level, lighted case, whereas the Phantom series are proper gaming cases designed for optimal cooling.

    You can add drives to any decent case, however, in cases, as with power supplies, you get what you pay for. The Phantom is a much better case than the Zalman.

    I understand, But you said that the zalman is not cooling the GPU
    So, you mean that my GTX 770 will be very hot in the ZALMAN
    But with the NZXT, it's will stay cold.. ?
     
    The zalman will not kill my GPU? bcz i don't have the budget for the NZXT

    The Zalman won't cause your GPU to overheat. It's just that the NZXT cools it better. If you can't afford the NZXT then the Zalman will do fine.

    If you live in an area that hot I would wait and get the NZXT, you'll need all the cooling you can get if that's your ambient temperature. With a case it's better to take your time and get a good one, as it's not something you really have to update.

    Ah! tell me please,
    In the zalman z11+ : There is 5x Cooler (Airing)
    And in the NZXT, there is only 3x Cooler...
    I know that we can add more, on the NZXT
    But, i will not do it in the future, i want to buy a case without modification..
     
    So you suggest the NZXT even if we have only 3X cooler?!

    The NZXT Phantom 410 supports cards up to 30.5cm long if you remove the internal fan pivot, and 28cm if you don't. Your card isn't that long. A GTX 770 is just over 26.5cm long. So it doesn't matter. The NZXT will cool better because it blows cool air directly onto the parts that matter, i.e your GPU. The Zalman has no direct side intake. Adding fans is easy, and the NZXT supports up to 8 case fans, though it only ships with the main 3. The NZXT is a better case.
     
    You'd get much quicker answers to these questions if you just googled it yourself you know.

    Thanks you ! man, but you didn't answered to my question:
    Even, if the NZXT Phantom 410 have only 3x Cooler (Included)
    And the Zalman Z11+ have 5x Cooler (Included)
     
    You think that the NZXT will beat the Zalman on Cooling? even with 3x Cooler only?

    The Zalman will probably cool better at stock overall, however the Phantom would keep your GPU cooler most likely, and be much superior if you added fans.

    Your card should be just under 27cm long, as all GTX 770 are. I can't estimate an exact temperature, that depends on your ambient temperature, your cooling, how clean you keep your case, where you keep your case, etc. The Phantom is definitely a better case but you have to add more fans for it to reach it's potential. If you're not going to upgrade the fans, get the Zalman. I would get the Phantom if you want to overclock though, as it has better airflow if you add more fans. I wouldn't want to overclock much in the Zalman case.
